NERVOUS Posted February 17, 2016 Share Posted February 17, 2016 Hello all, I'm new to roaches... Looking for feedback from more experienced keepers than myself. I'm currently keeping colonies of: - Blaptica Dubia - Nauphoeta Cinerea - Panchlora Nivea I'm not able to attach pictures directly to my post (due to size limits), so here are URLs instead: Bug farm - https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_yNy39A-ExvOGI2NWJDWlRnNms B. Dubia bin - https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_yNy39A-ExvMHlyelVzdnJVNVU N. Cinerea - https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_yNy39A-Exvck9HMWFIS1VndVE P. Nivea (before adding roaches) - https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_yNy39A-ExvaDRrbVNtZjQ3NXM Here's some general high-level detail on the bins. Each one has a heating element underneath with a non-luminous ceramic heat emitter suspended from above. Each bin has a dedicated thermostat to control both heating elements. I keep these bins in my garage on top of a folding table. Here's some bin-soecific detail on each of the bins: - B. Dubia bin is filled with vertically stacked egg crates with a single layer horizontal egg crates on top to support food trays on each side. Temperature is set to 85-95 degrees. - N. Cinerea bin is setup the same way as the B. Dubia bin except it's much smaller in size. Temperature is set to 85-95 degrees. - P. Nivea bin has coconut fiber substrate with cork rounds and flats on top. Temperature is set to 85 degrees (underneath the cork). I'm interested in hearing any/all feedback re: these enclosures. Thank you in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
